Product Description

Hone Your Anesthesia ICD-10 Coding


Schools, coding camps, and all-specialty seminars will certainly teach you the conventional ICD-10 coding rules—but what they won’t teach you is diagnosis coding specific to anesthesia. If you don’t know the differences between reporting diagnosis codes for anesthesia services versus conventional coding and reporting rules, you’re likely coding incorrectly.

Learn which codes may apply to the anesthesia patient in this information-packed audio presentation by expert speaker Kelly Dennis. Understand diagnosis coding for anesthesia services and when to report (or not report) multiple diagnosis codes.

After attending this audio event, you will be able to effectively and correctly code anesthesia services diagnosis codes. You’ll also be able to analyze and audit your diagnosis coding proficiency for benchmarking purposes. Additionally, you’ll walk away with essential online resources, as well as a helpful auditing tool to check and monitor your diagnosis coding performance.
